Mission Statement:

The Y-Leaders program serves approximately twenty-five to thirty 15-18 year-old high school students at Bowsher and Waite High Schools. The focus of the program revolves around four key elements: academics, leadership development, healthy living, and career and college readiness. Students in our program benefit from extra after school help with homework and participate in student-centered, project-based programming both in the classroom and out in the community during field trips.
